Sony VPL VW290ES Projector

Sony projectors have become the gold standard for us in residential applications. Their images are simply brilliant. And it comes down to some very clever technology that they use. This technology is filtering down into the lower levels of projectors as well making the VPL VW290es unbeatable in that sub $10,000 category.

Like its predecessor, the VPL VW270es, this projector is native 4K and doesn't employ any shaking or shifting chips to produce a 4K image. It's the real thing. It also has the 4K motionflow technology on board to give a life like smoothness to the image.

What's new in the 290 that the 270 didn't have, is the X1 chip processor. This intelligent chip contains an image analyser and applies Dynamic HDR enhancer and super resolution.

Dynamic Tone Mapping is present in this model too where before it was exclusively for the higher end models.

There are of course some things that Sony have kept exclusively for the higher end models. The Laser light source is the most obvious. With the lamp light source you're looking at 1500 peak lumens instead of 2200 for something like the VPL VW870es with the Laser. 

Interestingly the inner lenses are made of glass in this model but the outer cover is plastic. The lenses are all aspherical to stop refraction aberation, a feature normally found on much more expensive projectors. Sony is really being clever here getting the aspherical lens in at this price point using cheaper materials in an effective manner.

Overall a sensational projector for people serious about Home Theatre without spending a fortune. This unit is already proving itself as a customer favourite.
